What we do

Connecting people who care with causes in need

The Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS) improves lives by bridging donors with charitable organisations to develop programmes and give out grants that support various causes.

With our community knowledge and grantmaking expertise, we provide strategic advice and trusted guidance for effective philanthropy. Through the years, we have helped generous individuals, families and corporations establish funds that have enriched the lives of those in need.

CFS is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status which allows donors to receive tax deductions on their donations.
